He threatened me that I could be a possible assasination-victim, because I get scolarship-money from the Norwegian government, but I think that was only a little small talk and trying to be polite in an assasin kinda way.
This morning he also sent me roses for my bat (Which is named "Nameless") from his own bat (named Dina). It seems like Nameless enjoyed it a lot.
With the roses were a note with something I can only understand as a riddle or a puzzle.
If anybody can crack it, please inform me.
The puzzle goes as follows:
What makes an ordinary day special?
1) A tasty cheese cake?
2) A brand new TFT monitor
3) Twelve red roses
4) A gin Tonic
5) The warmth of the flying spaghetti monster

I have just bought the last book
A Feast for Crows
of the series
"A song of ice and fire"
by George R R Martin
I was a huge fantasy skeptic
until I got this one in my hands
(Not counting LOTR and HP now)

I dont think we can map or put personality into "categories", but there are often interesting guidelines to help you grow as a person or understand yourself better.
Maybe you have heard about the Keirsey test* or Briggs Meyr test* and the temperamental sorter. The basis is Jungian psychology, which operates with different modes for perception :
Extroverted / Introverted
Intuitive / Sensing
These ways of perceiving are again divided into wetter they are extroverted or introverted, meaning weather you are mostly focusing and directing it inwards on yourself or outwards on the world. Then again they are divided into which of they perceiving ways that are dominant for you and which are not.
An example: Taking the test this time, I got the score:
Intuitive (N) 66.67% Sensing (S) 33.33%
Feeling (F) 56.76% Thinking (T) 43.24%
Perceiving (P) 75% Judging (J) 25%
Dominant: Extraverted Intuition
Auxiliary: Introverted Feeling
Tertiary: extroverted Thinking
Inferior: Introverted Sensing
further the different temperaments are divided into several groups where out from their dominant features. These groups are called: Artisans, Guradians, Idealists and rationals
I found a littel cute site making a funny comparison about that matter:
Slytherin is the house for students known as being 'resourceful...with a certain disregard for rules,' also 'shrewd' and 'cunning folk [who] use any means to achieve their ends.' Sounds suspiciously like Keirsey's Artisans.
Hufflepuff is home to students who are 'hard workers,' also 'just and loyal,...patient...true, and unafraid of toil.' Who but Keirsey's Guardians?
Gryffindor welcomes those students known for their 'chivalry,' and who are willing to fight for what is 'right and good.' Very much like Keirsey's Idealists.
Ravenclaw is the 'wise old' house, reserved for only the 'cleverest' students, those of 'ready mind...wit and learning. Definitely Keirsey's Rationals.
I found a very simple and short version of this test
and here is an even shorter and super quick version, for those in a hurry
The very quick one has also a link to a really, really great page, where there are an in depth explanation and analysis of your type (which for me was strikingly accurate) and also tips and advises for personal growth. HereÂ´s an example from that page. It is really worth a look
If you want to ead more about the Keirsey test you can also visit this page
* These are not the original Briggs Meyer and Keirsey test, but similar ones that are free. The original ones require payment. The one I have linked to the Briggs Meyr test is a longer version witha more in depthexplanationn and results than the first link

"It would be possible to describe everything scientifically, but it would make no sense; it would be without meaning, as if you described a Beethoven symphony as a variation of wave pressure."
"He who joyfully marches to music in rank and file has already earned my contempt. He has been given a large brain by mistake, scince for him the spinal cord would fully suffice. This disgrace to civilization should be done away with at once. Heroism at command, senseless brutality, deplorable love-of-country stance, how violently I hate all this, how despiceable an ignoreable war is; I would rather be torn to shreds than be a part of so base an action! It is my conviction that killing under the cloak of war is nothing but an act of murder."
"As far as the laws of mathematics refer to reality, they are not certain; as far as they are certain, they do not refer to reality."
"If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?"
"Common sense is the collection of prejudices acquired by age eighteen."
"Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former."
And last, a little thought for Bush to chew upon:
"You cannot simultaneously prevent and prepare for war."
